Pickett, fifty, of 1943 Biltmore Street northwest, died yesterday afternoon at his home following a prolonged illness. The funeral will be held at 2:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon from St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Interment will take place in Rock Creek cemetery. Mr. Pickett had been practically an invalid for five years. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Sallie Beverly Vawter Pickett and relatives in Kentucky and West Virginia. He was born in Charleston, W. Va., the son of Col. John T. Pickett, in the diplomatic service before the civil war and a veteran of the Confederate forces. He was educated at St. John's College, at Ellicott City College and at Georgetown University. He received the degree of master of laws from the latter institution in 1888. After a career as a civil engineer, during which he engaged in reclamation work, he took up the work of a claims attorney with James H. Causten (1787-1874),who worked to settle French spoliation claims. Pickett succeeded to Causten's interest in the claims cases. He was associated with Gen. Peter Haines in building the tidal basin and in reclaiming the Potomac flats. Later he did engineering work in South America. Mr. Pickett won fame as a foot ball player on the team of the Columbia Athletic Club in Washington. He was one of the charter members of the club, and was one of the organizers of the Century Club here. He was also a member of the Metropolitan Club and the National Rifles Club. Mr. Pickett was a great-grandson of Gov. Desha of Kentucky.
